Borgata Settles $1.2 Million Lawsuit with Poker Player Scott ...

Scott Robbins filed a seven-figure lawsuit against the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa after he was booted from the property and handed a lifetime ban over a suicide joke Robbins made while he was checking in.

According to court records, the two parties reached an agreement on Sept. 9 but there wasn’t a formal filing with the U.S. District Court of New Jersey.


"I have been on ... all day trying to get a lawyer who actually honor the whole "free consultation" thing. Most have either not called back or avoided it altogether. He actually gave me a real consultation where he elaborated thoroughly and gave me detailed answers to my questions. He was generous with his time, and even recommended something against his own self-interest (told me how I can take care of my situation without the help of a lawyer). All I can say is society needs more lawyers like him. "- Anonymous
